Galatasaray vs. Arsenal

Arsenal and Galatasaray will meet in a group stage UEFA Champions League match on Tuesday. The contest is the final match for both teams in group play. 

The Gunners locked up a spot in the knockout round with last month's victory over Borussia Dortmund, but Arsenal can still win the group with a victory and a loss by Borussia Dortmund. (Arsenal can also win the group with a win and a Dortmund draw, though such a scenario would require Arsenal to overcome Dortmund's superior goal difference.) 

Galatasaray has already been eliminated from knockout stage contention. The Turkish side will finish last place in Group D. Currently, Galtasaray has only one point. 

These two teams met in Champions League group play in October at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal came away with a 4-1 victory.
